Seattle Washington Raccoon Control Situation: My neighbor and I would like to have you give us a very approximate estimate for raccoon removal. There are several large trees, one a 30 foot cherry. As far as we know, no raccoon is living in either house. There are also chickens in the neighborhood we would like to protect from raccoons. I have a deck and see no signs of them living under it, but don't know exactly what to look for. We live near Green Lake in Seattle. This is at least teh second year we ahve had these raccoons, and I knwo they bred last year. There doesn't seem to be any garbage problem with them. There is one very inconveniently located latrine in my yard and maybe two. Please contact me with and I will be happy to answer any questions you may have. Thanks, Kody
Hello David, My name is Sherry and I live in the Seattle area. I am trying to research ways to get rid of a bunch of raccoons who live on my property. They have ripped holes in my pool screen, thrown rocks in my pool, torn up toys, dumped all of the plants and have generally been destructive. We never have food out by the pool. We found footprints in the house and they come out during the day, when they see us, to drink from the pool. They are not afraid and we have to do something at this point. We have lived with the issue for the fall and winter and need to move them now, since they are getting bolder and my children want to use the pool.We cannot afford to hire you, though I would love to. If you would please, can you tell me how I can determine if a female is nursing a litter of pups? We have seen small raccoons who ride on their mother's backs, but they are yearlings. If there is a mother with a new litter, I do not want to trap and move her until the babies are viable on their own. Your experience with this problem would be a blessing to me--and to any baby raccoons! Do you provide raccoon removal in Redmond WA? Thank you and God Bless, Sherry
I came along your website and would like your advice on a problem I have. I live in Seattle WA, in Ballard near Green Lake. Behind my house is a sump/basin where wildlife undoubtedly inhabit. In any event, for the past few weeks Ive had issues with the garbage pails on the side of my house chewed open and tossed down with garbage strewn all over. I came home one night and spotted the offender raccoon and then saw about 5 others emerge from under the deck behind my home. With the light, they retreated over the back fence into the sump area. The garbage problem continues. A nuisance, but the next problem is worse. 3 mornings ago, about 6:30 am, we heard scampering and scratching noises from what sounded like above our 2nd floor bedroom; I hoped it was on the roof but it didn't sound that way. The next morning, the same thing. When I went outside, I saw attic insulation on the ground at which point I looked up and saw the soffet detached on one corner of my home and a nice sized gap. I called a local animal removal expert. His feeling was that it was squirrels and we will shoot for them, but it might be raccoons. His advice was not to close up the hole as of yet and he set up 4 squirrel traps at the base of the tree closest to the area on my home. One squirrel was caught last night. And he told me to call him each morning if squirrels are caught. There are an immense number of squirrels around my home. Will this approach work? Should I hire a contractor to immediately repair the area?
